Notes Announced by Thomas S. Monson on January 25, 2010. A public open house was held from April 24-May 23, 2015, excluding Sundays, and the temple was dedicated in three sessions on June 7, 2015.[1][2]

The Payson Utah Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Payson, Utah. The temple is located on the southernmost edge of Utah's Wasatch Front, and is the 15th dedicated temple in the state.


The intent to construct the temple was announced on January 25, 2010, by church president Thomas S. Monson. The temple is located near the intersection of 930 West and 1550 South in Payson, on previously undeveloped land. Additional details, such as the temple's planned size, were not available at the time of the announcement.[3]

Dallin H. Oaks presided at the groundbreaking ceremony on October 8, 2011, with William R. Walker conducting and Steven E. Snow, Jay E. Jensen, and Janette Hales Beckham in attendance. Jason Chaffetz (representative for Utah's 3rd congressional district, which includes Payson) participated in the shovel ceremony.[4][5]

When construction was completed in 2015, the temple became one of the largest built in recent years, at 96,630 square feet on a 15-acre lot.[6][7] A public open house took place from April 24 through May 23, 2015, excluding Sundays.[8] The temple was dedicated by Henry B. Eyring on June 7, 2015.[2]

In 2020, like all the church's other temples, the Payson Utah Temple was closed in response to the coronavirus pandemic.[9]
